It depends. Plus, you simply can't compare the first Star Wars to the Potters as the box office climate was ENTIRELY different back then. Also, Potter-films are bigger than Star Wars in various countries (Japan, Germany, France, United Kingdom, China, Australia). Now, if we bring the books into the equation, it becomes a completely different story. The impact of the Potter books are unlike anything before. You could easily argue Potter had just as much, if not a stronger immediate effect on the world. Besides, Potter turned millions of kids to love reading. That in itself is a phenomenon.

HP is an international book phenomenom. The movies are just gravy. How international it is, is appearant in that the movies were successful everywhere, compare that for instance to The Hunger Games. I was not aware that SW sold lot of books. I bought one in 1978 and read it. It was terrible, just a retelling of the movie.
